Video: Green Street Advisors CEO Craig Leupold Expects Increased M&A, Privatization Activity

In a recent interview, Craig Leupold, the CEO of Green Street Advisors, a company providing real estate data and analytics for improved decision-making with insights to help investors understand, forecast, and capitalize on changing market conditions, shares views on commercial property valuation, interest rate expectations, and activism. He describes his firm’s evolving approach to valuation with the addition of implied internal rates of return, which are made possible by their new Real Estate Analytics product line. On the topic of rising interest rates, Craig notes that while real estate can be a somewhat decent inflation hedge, higher rates have recently proven to be a slight headwind for real estate and REITs. Finally, in the short term, Green Street sees rising merger, acquisition, and privatization activity reducing the number of REITs.
